Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of AutoCAD: Working with Dimensions.
- If you are a Premium member of the Lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. These files can be found on the Exercise Files tab on the main course page. Let's take a look at the Exercise Files folder. It contains two subfolders. My Files has just one file in it, Dimensioning1. This is the file you will begin with in the course, and as you go through the videos, you'll be saving additional files which will be numbered sequentially, so you'll save Dimensioning2, Dimensioning3, and so on.
The Completed Files folder contains all the files from the course, so you can jump in anywhere and get started from any particular video. Just make sure that you don't overwrite these files with the ones that you're working on. Instead, save those in the My Files subfolder. If you don't have access to the exercise files, you can follow along from scratch or with your own assets. Let's get started.
